I have the same tank and the same light, although I do have algae but I know I'm doing several things wrong.......I'm curious as to how you have "over driven" the fixture? I'm guessing you would of had to change the ballast out, otherwise you would just be under driving 24w HO bulbs at 14w? Care to share you modification?

By all rights, there should be algae everywhere but I just think I'm really lucky. The plants must grow fast enough to outcompete most of the algae. There is a little GSA here and there, but nothing too bad.
